What’s one of your disappointing Makeup and Beauty purchases at the moment (or in the past)?
I have tons but there’s one in particularly that comes to mind which really disappointed me in a major way!
Revlon relaunched their powder blush range for Spring 2013 in a collection entitled Cheek Boutique. Honestly, seeing ALL those beautiful blushes in one display at such a low price really made this makeup junkie happy. They looked so pigmented and quite lovely.
So I went ahead and purchased a majority of the shades and I can’t begin to tell you how disappointing they all were. The formula turned out to be super dry, dense, and had very little pigment. I couldn’t even get my brush to pick up color from a majority of the shades. I think it was so disappointing because the shades truly were beautiful so they had kinda teased me a little with beautiful colors but a formula that just didn’t live up to the visible eye candy.
It was probably one of my most memorable experiences with “what you see, isn’t always what you’ll get when you try it!”
Don’t get me wrong, I experience disappointing beauty and makeup purchases all the time but this one seems to be the one that stuck out in my head as the most disappointing. It was just that the blush looked so damn promising and BAM you use it and it’s like WTF just happened?!
Makeup life lesson learned.
